Teresa

As a first-generation college student, I am proud to establish this milestone not only for myself, but also for my family. Being able to attend college is a big accomplishment – college will open more doors for me than it ever did for my parents. My parents are hard-working Chinese immigrants who came from Hong Kong and decided to pursue the American Dream vicariously through me. They have taught me to be an independent woman and have given me the confidence to believe that I have the capabilities to persevere through all aspects of life.

I begin my journey as a rising sophomore at Baruch College, where I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Accounting. Although I am not certain where I will land in the corporate world, I know that business is a versatile profession that can lead to unlimited opportunities. Thus, I am confident that my determination and ambition will turn my “American Dream” into reality.

America Needs You is a critical checkpoint in my journey and I am truly honored to be a part of such an incredible and dedicated family. I am confident that ANY will provide great mentorship and will motivate me to strive to reach my highest potential. As a result, I am excited to learn and grow, both personally and professionally, with ANY’s endless support.
